Waterville - Police in the rural village of Waterville are trying to figure out who shot a cat that was found with an arrow through its body.

The cat that was found with an arrow shot through its body is recovering at a central New York veterinarian's office.

James Gilchrist, the managing veterinarian at the Waterville Veterinary Clinic, told the Observer-Dispatch of Utica that the 68cm target arrow was still lodged in the cat's abdomen when it was found last month in a field.

Gilchrist said the arrow entered the right side of the male cat's abdomen between two ribs and exited from the left side just behind his ribs. It lacerated the liver, stomach and spleen.

The cat underwent two surgeries and is expected to survive. It has been adopted and will go to its new home on Thursday.
